The signing of VanCamp suggests to me that all those "short lists" were either fabricated by entertainment writers or based on hype generated by various actresses' agents. "Sources close to the selection process" could mean anyone from a producer at Marvel to an actor's rep or some guy who works in a studio mailroom. Planting a casting rumor is a quick way to get a hit of publicity for a film or an actress. Marvel might have had its eye on VanCamp all the while, as far as we know.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
